    Interesting cartidge belt - I'd guess the buckle to be 1880's to 1900 era
    ( Spanish American Wars ).

    100-Loop Mills Belt

    It also could have been dyed and modified with an older type buckle.
    One end appears to have been cut/trimmed recently, as it is
    a clean cut and there is no fraying.........
    Regards,

    Is there a makers name on the backside of the buckle at all? Anson Mills was improving the regulation cartridge belt after the Civil War. At the Start of the Spanish American War the Anson Mills factory was producing 1000 belts a day with the new and improved style that called for weaving the belt together in one piece to eliminate stitching and sewing. The war was to short lived for Mills to profit greatly off his new and improved belt, so he was forced into manufacturing belts and buckles for the general public. He also supplied the Canadian Military with his belts into the Boer War. Ironically enough about 10 yrs ago my dad was plowing up on of our hay fields and he plowed up an old Anson Mills buckle, (Non Military) with the Mills name and stamp on the back side of the lip on the buckle.... Dont know if this helps, but knowing that Mills enforced the belts to the weaved continuous style puts an age idea to subjects like this.
